Your Destiny


Are you on an adventure?  Most of us are, whether we want to admit it or not.  What makes our lives an adventure? We want to do something, go somewhere, or end up in some location doing specific things and living life to a particular style.  Why is this an adventure?  Good question.

Our lives are adventures because although we know what we would like to do, we may not understand all the hurdles of procuring what we need and getting to where we want to be.  The biggest problem is that the future is continuously changing, and no one can tell you what is actually going to happen.  Side note: If you can actually see the future, I need the winning numbers for the upcoming Saturday Powerball.

We can guess at the future. We can use what has happened in the past as a stepping off point for the future.  We can watch what others are doing and pattern ourselves after them.  Yet there are no guarantees.  The best hope we have is to choose our path and walk it with our head on a swivel looking at the terrain and knowing when we see something different so that we can adjust as needed.

With Artificial Intelligence on the rise, we do not even know if the career we are working in will be accomplished by humans.  Even life coaching has a chatbot on your phone to help you.  I prefer the human to human experience.  At least we can better relate to each other.

The only thing worse than going off into the future with no plan is not to go at all.  We each have our own destiny, and we must each face it, head-on.  The best thing is that if we work at what we want, we will probably do okay.

Thank you for being with me today.  I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
